Had this beauty from biodynamic Marlborough winery Seresin the other evening. It’s a really compelling Chardonnay. New Zealand’s top Chardonnays are underrated, and they can be superb.
Seresin Chardonnay Reserve 2013 Marlborough, New Zealand
13.5% alcohol. 20% new oak. This is beautiful. Lovely matchstick, mineral nose with some taut citrus and apple fruit. The palate shows complex pear, apple and lemon fruit with spicy acidity and lovely precision. There’s a really detailed, mineral core to this wine with tingling, electric acidity keeping things really focused. Lots of potential for development. Has a really fine spiciness. 93/100
